And the album first start kicked off with ‘Big Wide World’. An interesting song that started with the baritone that’s meshed in a sonorous melody. The singer recollects his past life experience and how much he missed some part of his younger self.
“Take me home mama, I’ll do what I am told”….Yeah we are do have those “I need a break” teen moments, here in this song, the artist’s reminiscence of his own teen moment is what inspired the song with a hook as soothing like this one.
Not to forget in a hurry, the backup singer whose vocals splashed on the hook of the song did a fantastic work as well. If you enjoy classic or probably a song that sound like an 80’s pop classic, then this song is the best Easter gift you should give yourself now.
